The World of Words By Brenda Drake

I remember as a child saying sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me.  It is not so.  I have been injured by words many times.  God’s Word heals.  Jesus the Word of God has healed my sin-sick soul.   

In a World of Words

In a world of words what do you hear?
Are they the kind of things that incite anger or fear?
Words that discourage or cause anxiety within,
Are not of value to be allowed in.
In a world of words one word true,
Causes faith to grow inside of you.
Rivers of peace and flowers of joy abound;
With sure direction leading to higher ground.
The word of truth stands tall and will not change direction;
Great is the Word of God’s provisions to prosper from them.
Jesus is the Word of God that spoke from the cross to man,
Directing the way to salvation the Father planned.
In the world of words of lie and deceit;
Where chaos and decisions increase;
Where the right way is painted wrong,
And what God says is evil now belongs.
Where hatred is hidden in cunning expressions,
And love is frivolously or fake in its confession,
Speak God’s Word, live the Word, love words kind and true.
Love Jesus the Word and He will shine through.
In the world of words the One who made all you see and do not see,
Becomes the world to you for all eternity.

Proverbs 15:4
A wholesome tongue is a tree of life:
but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.

John 1:1-4
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  The same was in the beginning with God.  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.  In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

Move into Position By Brenda Drake

So many people I have spoken to have been unable to sleep a whole night without waking up to pray for our Nation.  God is in control and He hears our prayers and when they align with His will and His Word His answer is yes and Amen.

By the way, in response to the silliness of the recent prayer ending of amen and a women.

Revelation 3:14
And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

Move into Position 

Move into the place prepared;
Into the victorious stance of prayer.
Who do you trust in? Is it God or man?
Do you speak words of defeat or the Word of I AM?
God is not thwarted; He is not pushed off His throne.
When you stand with Him you are not alone.
God sees everything; you as in a dark glass see.
The wise will yield to God’s way and trust where He leads.
Move into position ready to fight,
The battle set before you as in God’s strength you delight.
The weapons of your warfare are not carnal; they are mighty indeed.
In your warfare you pull down the strongholds of the enemy.
Are you ready? Get set and to go,
To the run the race in the Spirit’s flow?
Prayer is the position. The Word of God the weapon best,
Praying the Word over the Nation as in Jesus’ name you confess.

2 Corinthians 10:4-5
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

1 Corinthians 13:11-12
When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

2 Samuel 7:24-25
For thou hast confirmed to thyself thy people Israel to be a people unto thee for ever: and thou, Lord, art become their God.  And now, O Lord God, the word that thou hast spoken concerning thy servant, and concerning his house, establish it for ever, and do as thou hast said.

When Tomorrow Comes By Brenda Drake

This is the first day of the New Year.  It is the gift of today; let us get tomorrow in focus by trusting and following the Lord today.

When Tomorrow Comes

I walk into tomorrow with the Word as a guide.
It lights my path and He dwells inside.
Because of God’s assurance and presence deep within,
I can walk ahead without fear as I follow after Him.
The world’s loud voice says all is lost,
But God speaks in a loving sound, meet me at the cross.
The world shows its hard muscles of deception and decay.
But my Lord instructs to bow our knee and pray.
Truth reigns victorious in the end.
Rest and have faith as you place your trust in Him.
Tomorrow is a mystery but one thing I know is true,
My God is already there and He leads us through.
Today is a good day to praise God above;
Giving thanks for His everlasting love.
When tomorrow comes it is the perfect time again,
To offer it as a today-gift, as you walk in faith with Him.

Matthew 6:33=34
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.  Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Defeated by Prayer By Brenda Drake

The world is full of information, some false and some true.  It can become tiresome and confusing to say the least.  But one thing I know, God has the final word.  Jesus is the Word. The Word of God tells us and shows us the power of prayer. There is great authority when we pray for God’s will be done, in Jesus’ name.

Defeated by Prayer

A fist full of reasons why something should or should not be done,
Are all made as nothing by one word from God’s Son.
Lazarus was buried; wrapped up tight to stay.
But when Jesus spoke he had to obey.
The stench of death was faced,
However by a word from God it was erased.
The mourners were wailing; his death was declared,
But they were stilled, proved wrong by one word of prayer.
The unbelievers were many but that did not mean a thing;
Nothing stops the will of Christ Jesus the King.
The fist full of facts did not stop God’s plan.
No one that was present that day could fully understand,
But the hearts that were touched were many that day.
As death’s cold hand was pushed away.
It was not time for the departure of the brother of Martha and Mary.
It was turned about; they could not yet Lazarus bury.
Just so are those that falsely declare
The death of a Nation; these too are defeated by prayer.  

Mathew 6:10
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Isaiah 35:4-5
Say to them that are of a fearful heart,
Be strong, fear not:
behold, your God will come with vengeance,
even God with a recompence;
he will come and save you.
Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened,
and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
